About the Program
KIC AgriTech Challenge Classic is a 7-month program that identifies young people who are interested in setting up a business and provides them with a system of training, workshops, and support to develop their business ideas. The program uses coaching and market research tours to encourage participants to take a fresh look at the agriculture value chain and identify new areas with potential business opportunities.
This entrepreneurship training program is also competitive amongst teams formed by individuals who are admitted into the program.
The Kosmos Innovation Center is a center that invests and supports young entrepreneurs and small businesses with viable ideas in the agriculture sector to thrive. KIC provides entrepreneurs with leadership training, mentorship and network of support, as well as potential access to seed funding from KIC or other entities willing to invest in start-ups.
The entire entrepreneurship support is embedded in the AgriTech Challenge. The AgriTech Challenge is divided into the Classic and Pro programs.
